This wild eagle is just passed through bright/contrast and added a frame, he gave me a lot of trouble in taking a picture.

You start with a nice portrait, Ros.
Pity that that the face is in the shadow. And the white spots to the left are a little disturbing,
Good POV, well composed and good details.
Well done.

Welcome to TN.

Nice opening post Ros,

Excellent first presentation Rosana. I like the composition a lot and the details are sharp. Like Gert wrote; the white spots in the left lower corner are a bit disturbing and it's too bad that the face is in the shade. I also think the frame is a bit too much, although I also think it's 'different'. Even through the shade, you managed to capture a catchlight in the eye. Well done & TFS!


Nice portrait to start off with, image is well composed, could maybe do with a little more tweaking in Photoshop, for example, to really bring out the eye detail and crisp it up a little.

Hello Ros

I like this shot. The shadow give a mysterious mood. I agree the white spots are disturbing. Cloning them out would have been an idea.

Welcome to TN Ros.
Nice Eagle portrait you have here.
I like the green bg,colors,POV and focus.TFS

Hi Ros! Gotta go, sorry for the short one..
Nice profile portrait.

Hi Ros,
Welcome to Trek N.
Excellent capture and well done on the composition.
Cloaning the whites would be a great improvement on the composition.
The drop shadows on the double matting is too much, unrealistic, the frame looks great and the drop shadow is realistic.

Great start Ros!
Classic portrait of this proud and beautifull bird. I love its eye and water-green BG.

Welcome on TN!

Welcome to TN Rosana an intresting portrate for a 1st post, I think Miles said most things I would wish to say about it, apart from the frame which is a little over the top for TN, where the emphis is more on the image than the presentation along with details about the subject and where and how shot go down well in the note.
Any way thank you for making the move over to TN from TE & I look forward to many more from you, yours Robert (TN Moderator)

A very good first performance, Rosanna. The frame is too big for my taste but it is personnal. You got the eye well.
Nice composition and point of view.
